NOON: Youth Lagoon - “Afternoon”


If Beach House and Washed Out had chill-wave-lo-fi babies, my guess is one of them would sound like Youth Lagoon, the musical project by Trevor Powers. The 22-year-old Boise, Idaho musician makes home-grown indie pop gems with low levels of production crossed against high amounts of intimate nostalgia. Add an element of childhood innocence and you have “Afternoon,” a blissful beauty of a standout track from The Year of Hibernation, out now on Fat Possum and definitely worth a listen.
